Munich - The ink has dried and the paperwork has been complete on the transfer of Mario Gomez from treble winners FC Bayern Munich to Serie A side ACF Fiorentina.
After an agreement between all parties was met last week, the Germany international has now rubber-stamped his move to Italy, pending a medical.
A group of Fiorentina fans had set up camp at the Tuscan city's airport for days since Bayern and the Viola announced an agreement had been reached for the transfer of the 28-year-old from the Bundesliga to Serie A, and now they finally know when Gomez will emerge in the arrivals hall.
Gomez, who scored 112 goals in 172 games for the record German champions, will be arriving in Florence on Monday to undergo anobligatory medical and link up with his new team mates. He will be officially presented as a Fiorentina player on Monday evening.
Big contribution for Bayern
The gates of Florence's Stadio Artemio Franchi will also be thrown open for an expected storm of fans keen to catch a glimpse of the Germany international who "made a major contribution to two Bundesliga titles and two DFB Cup successes," according to Bayern's coach Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
